Meet the Seabones Team: Danny

Posted on

New mum, boss business owner and all round good woman, Danny, alongside Ming, dream't up and made Sea Bones a reality. 

SB: Where is your favourite surf break? 

D: Jails in the Maldives. It's a long righthander where I've managed to successfully pull in and out of a backhand barrel and literally met my fiance in the lineup there so..yip pretty spesh break. 

SB: What board are you currently riding?

D: 7'8 single fin Rincon (McTavish) to help my post-baby-un-surf-fit-shortboarding-self get back into it!

SB: What do you like to spend your spare time doing? 

D: Spare time - wtf is that?! Ummm..currently baking ginger crunch and chocolate afghan bikkies (a Kiwi fav), reading & learning as much as I can on how to build a better business and grow a healthy baby, hanging with my 3 month old grommet & family visiting from NZ bro. 

SB: From where do you draw inspiration? 

D: Time in the sea, business books, street & catwalk fashion for our Salt Gypsy ranges.  

SB: Current favourite film? 

D: Ali Wong - not quite a film but this stand up comic is legit HILARIOUS.

SB: Have you been reading any good books lately? 

D: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.

SB: What is your favourite music to play in the shop? 

D: Estere (Kiwi musician), The Brian Jonestown Massacre and James Brown!

SB: What environmental or social issue hits closest to home for you?

D: Great question! Plastic pollution and specifically that which ends up in our oceans. To this end, Salt Gypsy (my other biz) uses a recycled nylon lycra across our surfwear collections made from nylon waste that includes ghost fishing nets retrieved from the sea. I advocate this recycled nylon lycra (ECONYL®), and others like it, should be swim & surf industry standard - not an exception. We also use biodegradable packaging instead of plastic polybags. These bio bags are made from cassava root starch and manufactured by a great company based in Indonesia.
